Joe Domanick reported one instance of the tragic way in which the California criminal justice system and services for mentally ill people interface--or fail to do so ("How California Failed Kevin Evans," Aug. 26). All individuals who have contact with a mentally ill person, whether they are psychiatrists or other mental health workers, police or correctional officers, attorneys or judges, need to be knowledgeable and compassionate. They must be committed to reaching out and providing continuous service for as long as necessary.

The homeless population in Los Angeles has grown an estimated 10% annually for the last several years, according to figures from various city and county agencies. There are scores of missions, shelters and social service providers trying to stem the tide, despite unpredictable public and private funding and wavering support from a citizenry weary and impatient with an unending social crisis.

One thankful beneficiary called it the "saving grace" of homeless people in Los Angeles County. For 17 years, People Assisting the Homeless has lifted willing transients from life on the street with a network of shelters, job counselors and financial advisors.

Operators of a nonprofit charity that aids the homeless knew they would face a major decision when donated detergent and toothpaste began clogging the aisles of their Bell warehouse. Either Los Angeles-based Shelter Partnership would have to stop accepting some goods or move to another location around the corner. In retrospect, says warehouse director Jeff Schaffer, there wasn't much of a choice. "We just outgrew the old space," he said. "The volume of donations was that good."

Re "Rotten Weather, Rotten Timing," editorial, Aug. 21: Gov. Pete Wilson's veto of $1 million to support the continued use of National Guard armories for winter shelter could not have come at a worse time. With 84,000 people homeless on any given night in Los Angeles County, the armory beds represent a crucial boost to the system. There are 11,000 year-round homeless shelter beds in L.A. County, and the armories play a critical role by helping to provide 2,000 additional beds during the winter, which this year, with the coming of El Nino, is predicted to be the worst in decades.

"Petty Crimes, Big Headache" [Special Report: Small Business Survey, Oct. 14] vividly describes how our collective quality of life is affected by increasing poverty and the resulting incidence of people who are homeless seeking refuge on the street. While the past decade has seen a concerted, community-based effort to develop housing and services for the homeless, the public policies are oppositional. Since July 1, more than 12,000 single indigent individuals in Los Angeles County receiving county-supported general relief of $221 a month have been terminated from the program because of the enactment of a five-month time limit for receiving assistance.

Re "$9-Billion Income Tax Cut Urged by Wilson Task Force," Dec. 22: Before Gov. Pete Wilson makes a tax cut of $9 billion, I suggest that he consider an alternative. He proposes to cut the taxes of the wealthiest Californians by as much as $30,000. Middle-income people would receive a cut of about $300. Such a cut would have no substantive impact on the lifestyle of either the wealthiest or the middle income people. What would happen if Wilson leaves the $9 billion in place for the common good of the neediest people in California?

Your expose on "the Fort," the bottom-rung of New York City's municipally managed shelter system for the homeless, painted a most distressing picture of all that can go wrong in providing emergency shelter for the homeless. However, your readers should not be left with the impression that the fort depicts the typical shelter program around the country, most notably the programs in our community. Neither the City nor the County of Los Angeles operates shelters. Unlike New York, Los Angeles' short-term housing system is entirely operated by the private not-for-profit sector.
